Is A 5 cm Kidney Cyst Considered Large

Is A 5 cm Kidney Cyst Considered LargeKidney cyst, or renal cyst, is usually asymptomatic unless it is bigger than 4cm. From this point, a 5 cm kidney cyst must be considered large, because it oppresses its surrounding kidney tissues. Then, some symptoms such as back pain, hematuria or urinary tract infections may appear.

Simple kidney cyst is one abnormal kidney mass that can result from many factors, which are age, kidney infection, kidney injury, dialysis, autoimmune disorders, etc. No matter which is the underlying cause, you don’t need to worry. This is because small simple kidney cyst won’t cause any damage to the body as well as kidneys. However, 5cm kidney cyst is larger than that kidneys can bear, so it may cause some complications and symptoms.

If you are diagnosed with 5 cm kidney cyst, you had better take effective treatments timely. The treatment option should depend on the location of the kidney cyst.

If this 5 cm kidney cyst is located in renal cortex, surgery can help remove it successfully. This is because renal cortex is the outer of the kidney, so surgery both aspiration and decortication can help

remove kidney cyst directly. The big disadvantage of kidney cyst surgery is the risk of kidney cyst relapse. Therefore, patients may need to accept a surgery again. Aother treatment option is traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that can help shrink kidney cyst and inhibit the secretion of sac fluid. Finally, kidney cyst can be kept in small size and patients can live with it healthily and safely. Compared with surgery, TCM has lower relapse rate but needs to take relatively longer time.

If the kidney cyst is located in other kidney regions like parapelvic, surgery will fail to work. In this case, TCM or its innovation therapies are the only choices.

Now, we can know different locations of kidney cysts need different treatment options. If you have known the region of your kidney cyst, you can try to determine which treatment is suitable for you.
